In the realm of CNC machining, a fraction of an inch can make a world of difference in the quality, accuracy, and functionality of the final product. This makes the choice of a trunnion table — a critical component in modern machining setups — a crucial factor for machinists. Martin Trunnion Tables stands out in this regard, owing to the rigorous tolerances maintained during the manufacturing of our trunnion tables, ensuring an unparalleled level of precision.
One of the hallmarks of our trunnion tables is the incredibly flat working surface, which remains parallel to the faceplate of the rotary table within an astonishing tolerance of .0005". This feature is pivotal for machinists, ensuring that the parts are mounted flat, and are indexed in a repeatable, precise manner every single time. The importance of a flat working surface cannot be overstated in CNC machining, as it significantly impacts the accuracy and quality of the operations being carried out.
Equally remarkable is the center height of our outboard support, meticulously matched to the center height of the rotary table within a tolerance of .0002". The precision in aligning these center heights eliminates the risk of having a working surface that sits at an angle to the rotary table, a scenario that could compromise the integrity and accuracy of the machining process. By maintaining such a narrow tolerance, we ensure that the working surface is impeccably flat, providing a solid foundation for accurate machining.
Further enhancing the functional efficacy of our trunnion tables are the bores on either end of the table, kept concentric within a tolerance of .0005". This meticulous design allows for smooth rotation of the trunnion along the A axis, without any binding, which is paramount for operations that require precise rotational movements. The absence of binding translates to smoother operations, reduced wear and tear, and a longer lifespan for both the trunnion table and the CNC machine.
At the heart of these design and manufacturing triumphs is a deep-rooted understanding and appreciation of the machinist's craft. Our trunnion tables are not just tools but a testament to our dedication to precision and quality. By ensuring such high levels of accuracy, we provide machinists with a reliable, sturdy, and precision-engineered tool that makes a significant difference in their machining projects.
Martin Trunnion Tables are indeed a fusion of engineering excellence and machinist’s wisdom. The ethos of our brand is simple but profound: products built for machinists, by machinists. This philosophy reflects in every trunnion table we manufacture, promising not just a tool, but a companion in the pursuit of machining perfection. Through relentless attention to detail and a profound understanding of the machinist's craft, we continue to set new standards in what machinists can expect from their equipment.
